Chevy V8[edit]

The most common swap is to an LS series (aluminum block), which is most popular from the Corvette (but was also used in other vehicles such as the Trailblazer SS, Cadillac CTS-V, & 05/06 Pontiac GTO). The iron LT blocks should be do-able also. There is a 6 speed manual transmission available.
